Nick Cave & Warren Ellis

I’m thrilled but not terribly surprised to hear that Nick Cave and Warren Ellis collaborated on the score to the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s haunting novel, The Road. I haven’t seen the movie or heard the soundtrack yet, but it seems totally apropos given the fact that when I first read The Road, it was the duo’s impeccable work from The Assassination of Jesse James that mentally scored McCarthy’s stark prose for me—particularly this song:

I guess someone in Hollywood was thinking along the same lines. Cave and Ellis are masters of evoking the barren and haunting—a rather lovely thing indeed.

Guh, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are the best people to do the music for this movie. I’m glad to hear they were selected for the job! (Or did they volunteer to make the world a little sadder with their delightful tunes?)
